We also extend our appreciation to the business men of Wilmington, to the Optimist club, and to the Faculty members who assisted in this production. Q 5 Z DEDlCA.TION We, the Student Body of Phineas Banning High School, dedicate this Annual to the Wilmington Optimist Club, which has helped instill the glorious spirit of sincere friendship and optimism in the hearts of all Banning Students. .IDL i t 'VP Page Th EDITGRIAL . The Senior Class of nineteen hundred and twenty-nine has just completed in its graduation an important preparation toward life's work. Class days together will soon be a memory. It is not the past on which we dwell, but rather the future with its enticing promise of all good things. We are spinning our own fates, good or evil, never to be undone. Every stroke of vir- tue or error leaves its mark. Let none among us have any anxiety about the outcome of his education, whatever its field. Keeping faithfully busy each hour of the day, wemay safely leave the final result to itself. In order to be successful, we need only to take advantage ' of every opportunity for good. If we do our best, if we avail ourselves of the manifold blessing which sur- , -'1 41 mln , film ll mllldll' , nl lu. fuuillllu' gum'- N33 W' ,Z-?:""-I ffk Vx 1' I l XM, lm? round us, if we look at the bright side of things, we can- s NK not but achieve golden goals Nb ii in the Years to follow. Qx 'I I know not of a better W creed by which to be guided Q ' to genuine happiness than that uplifting one which is the inspiration of the Ojvzfi- wzixfs Club.

TO be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. TO talk health, happiness and every-person you meet. TO make all your friends feel that there is something in them, TO look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. TO think only of the best, to Work only for the best and to expect only the best. TO be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. TO forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achieve- ' ments of the future. TO wear a cheerful countenance at all times, and give every living crea- ture you meet, a smile. TO ive so much time to the im rovement of ourself that 'ou have no g. . 1 t 3 time to criticise others. TO be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble. CHRISTIAN D.

The first two started out from our port thus putting Wilmington in the lime light of the VVorld, the lat- ter is of local importance because composed our own boys and girls. The first was a voyage, the purpose of which was to spread peace and good will among the people, thus promoting happiness. The second had as its object the increasing of knowledge, thereby benefitting mankind. The Class of "29" in a way may be likened to the others. They, too, are launching out on a voyage. They have also the same objectives: those of making the world better and happier and increasing its knowledge. In their voyage they will meet with stress and storms and pass thru fogs to sunshine. In order to reach their goal they must have stout hearts and true faith. They must believe in themselves. They must be true "Optimists." W. I. TRAVIS, Principal.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY, W-'29 "Honorable Judge, I am presenting the Winter Class of '29 for their final degree from Phineas Banning High School. Their accomplishments merit such an honor. I am speaking for them. "Great in number We began our high school career with plenty of vigor. In that year we were given first place in the Courtesy Program and our girls captured the inter-class basketball championship. "Under the leadership of Mr. Van Zandt, our Sophomore year was thrilling! We had many social affairs. One of the best of these was the masquerade party given by Johnnie Morrison. "The Junior year brought our class to the front. Many honors were brought to the school by individual members of the class. Katherine Gillman was school representative in the National Oratorical Contest. "Seniors! And how we uphold that Senior dignity! Greatly decreased in number but not in spirit, our last year has indeed been a successful one. Besides competing in athletic contests, members of the class won scholastic mention. Carl Miller won first place in stock judging and Harold Miller second place in the Model Airplan Construction Contest. "Honorable Judge, having related the history of the Winter Class of '29, I am certain that these future citizens are indeed worthy of the de- gree which you are about to grant them."

Doris Fohl The class of '29 anchored at the Port of Wilmington, September, 1926, to begin its career at Banning High School with seventy freshmen. Mrs. Wolflin and Mr. Welch were its class teachers. "The Ship of Life" became the class motto. Florence Henderson made a score for the class by winning the oratori- cal contest in Banning. Class spirit reigned high in our Junior year. This gave the Seniors plenty of competition. Mrs. Winn and Mr. Freed were guardians this year. The hit of the season was a Junior play, "A Strenuous Life," starring Mildred Brettell and Tom Stockman. As Seniors we were greeted by our new teacher, Mrs. Griffith, who was given the entire class of fifty-one to guide. The Senior class of '29 has en- tered all the school activities and carried honors in academic Work as Well as sports. The class play, 'fThe Thirteenth Chair," upset the school with a bang! NO one realized that such mysterious happenings could be possible at Banning. The famous debators, Phyllis Evans, Raymond Miller, Rollin McBurney, and Allan Lind put Banning on the map. The ever-popular Tom Stockman was elected president of the student body and was succeeded by John. Morrison, vice-president, on Tom's departure from town. Banning's clever cartoonest, La Rue Foster, became president in mid-term. And now the "Ship of Life" is ready to weigh anchor and leave the port of Wilmington to continue its course.

Mr. Compton On a famous sun-dial this phrase is Written: "I record none but the hours of sunshine." As we think of these few words it would be well for all of us keep in our minds only the happy thoughts. So, after another year closes and we leave our dusty lockers, the familiar halls, our tired teachers, and our everlasting schoolmates, we will begin to think of the glorious days we have had together, of our work, our play, our joys, and our sorrows. The most important social event of the year was a trip to the Winter Sports at Big Pines, Los Angeles County Park Ground. Ten members of the class met at three-thirty Saturday morning, February 23, 1929, and started for the bleak, snow-capped mountains of Los Angeles County Park Ground. Upon arrival at the park they were received by a young gentleman riding on a motorcycle. He very graciously gave them a "tag" The reason for this pleasing note was "throwing snowballs at the automobiles as they passed by " After witnessing the various Winter Sport races, doing a great deal of hiking from place to place, going sleigh riding, and "having a swell time" they started for home. On arrival at school Monday morn- ing they were easily distinguished from the other pupils, for most of them were limping, or suffering from the effects of bad bruises on their bodies.

Nearly everyone in the class turned out and had a dandy good time. The girls of the class have taken active part in the Girls' League. They are very much interested in its activities under Mrs. Griffith. Louise Capolunga is the Girls' League representative from 201. Athletics held the attention of the boys in the iirst semester. Harry Francis and Carl D'Ambrosi were very active in football. Every one knows that Charles Dupuy is on the football team. The Christmas party of the three Sophomore home rooms was a great success. It Was held in the study hall. Dancing to an orchestra, original numbers by Mr. VanZandt were part of the entertainment. Miss Side- botham and Mrs. Weiss served the refreshments. The February snow party at Baldy Was another interesting social get- together of the Sophomores. Lots of snow, good eats, and a jolly bunch, were the main attractions of this event.

Being ushered into the auditorium amid the weird beating of tom-toms, what more could you ask? Football, basketball, track, and baseball have been engaged in by these "angel children." The high and mighty Seniors have nothing on us in athletics. The coveted captainship of the football team fell to none other than Wayne Pendergast, a Sophomore. Turley, Wlnchester, and Garcia, in the C basketball team, were in some of the mix-ups against some of Ban- ning's rivals. In the D basketball team we find Willey strutting his stuff, while Peterson as a sub, does his share against some of the schools too. Celso Rodriquez placed third of all Los Angeles entrants in the foreign trade poster contest in 1928. This is the first year soccer has been played at Banning, and it has met with the hearty approval of all the girls. The competition was greater in this sport than in any of the others. The proposed number of games was played more than twice, but a decision could not be reached. At last, it was decided to let it lay as a triple tie because of the approaching baseball season. This tie involves the A10's, the B10's, and the A11's. In closing this soccer season we look back with pleasant memories of many snappy games and eagerly look forward to next yearls competition.

One pleasant affair was a trip over the snow capped mountains of Camp Baldy. Three of our members, Floyd Turley, Frank Winchester and Arthur Willey have received basket- ball letters.

It was a picturesque little skit, produced by Mrs. Swart. ' We have succeeded in the social activities of the school, and in the Ath- letic events. The girls have won many games in our school league, and even though we had to be the "Clean Up Ccfmmittee' for the girl's playday, we did our share of the Work willingly.

At the end of the term we passed into the B8, rejoicing because we knew Banning and its pupils. As A8's we have chosen our class colorsg Red and White. We are making ourselves known by'starting a Junior High Honor Roll. Again we are training for the Junior High track meet. Some of the boys have gone out for spring football, while the girls are training for next year in sport activities.

Thru his inspiration we are trying hard to keep up an unus- ually fine school spirit and We believe We are succeeding fairly well. During both B8 and A8 terms we have had many good times, the most important being the Christmas and Valentine day celebrations. We have had some interesting and helpful talks by members of the class on "Fair Play" in the halls, auditorium, cafeteria, class rooms, home, stores, automo- biles and on the streets. Debates with other groups of the A8's are next in order and We hope to bring much glory to our class and school.

Our St. Patrick's minstrel also Went over the top. Our Christ- mas and Valentine parties were thrillers. We try to have a homey, home room.

When it was our time to give an entertainment in the school auditorium on November 26, 1929 we all worked halrd and tried to make it a success. There was a Christmas party held in our class room and We enjoyed it very muchi. About every Week there is a debate held in our room among the members of our class. Mr. Yeoman has been a very successful teacher and we have enjoyed working with him. We hold a regular meeting every day so it will teach us how to conduct a meeting when we are in the upper grades. We have found that the only Way to make a success of a home room is to all Work together. B8 ROOM 103 First Semester Officers Second Semester Mardelle Pilgrim ...,... ,....,...,..

F SENIOR STUDENT BODY PRESIDENTS After four years of high school, and on the eve of passing on to other scenes and activities, the message which it seems to me is the most im- portant to convey to my fellow students is, do your work, whatever it may be, to the best of your ability. Make your grades. Be in earnest. Make every opportunity count. If you have unusual mentality it is none the less essential, for your own good, to advance as far as possible in your studies. If you have but anprdinary mind, plug away with a sincere effort, and you will be the winner in the end. A What counts most, after all, in this high school period of our lives, is not so much, what mathematics, or English, or art we have mastered, but what habits of industry we have formed, what training we have given our desires,,what character we have shown, what we have learned of right and our own reaction thereto. ' Take stock of yourselves, note the direction in which you are heading, and if you find that you are sitting idly by on the side lines, get into the game and play it hard. Yours for true success, JOHN MORRISON. LOYALTY Fellow students of Banning! It is with a sense of deep regret that I face the close of my high school career and the end of my term as student body president. Words fail to express how much your support has meant to meg how greatly your loyalty has aided me. In order to make our craft seaworthy we must side together as a crew. We must show a spirit of loyalty toward our school, our teachers, our studies, and our scholastic ideals. We must be loyal to our captain, our officers, and to each other. We must make the word "Loyalty" a living reality. If we succeed in this purpose it is inevitable that our course will be a smooth one, and that once more our ship will voyage safely into port. -LA RUE FOSTER.

Programs given at Thanksgiving and Christmas to people in the County Farm were gratefully received. Toys and clothing were repaired and made for Christmas gifts to the poor. Help was also given to the merchants in measuring shoes that were given at Yuletide. The girls are learning to think of the happiness of others.

It is a product of the Journalism and Printing classes. Its objective is to cover the entire school life story as it unfolds each week. Reporters and space Writers are assigned duties and are required to fill their assignments as on any large daily paper. The advertising staff is required to sell enough space each Week to pay for the production of the paper. The printing department has the job of makeup, printing and folding. The circulation department delivers papers and sells them on the school grounds. The paper pays for itself. Page Forty-nint The Student Government is rated among the most important bodies of the year. To it is entrusted the morals and order of the school. There are two divisions in the organization, a boys' and a girls' group. At the head of each is the president, Who appoints officers to take charge of special posts.

K 'f'fg4j4,Q DEBATING Debating this year has been a very successful one for Banning due tothe wonderful coaching of Mr. Riffenburg whose efforts so often lead to victory, Phineas Banning placed teams in two debating leagues: the Marine League and the City League. They were successful enough to "cop" the championship of the Marine League and became a. close runner up in the City League by first place. This is the first debating championship to come to Phineas Banning. We are proud of this honor. The record in the Marine League was six wins and one loss. The question for the first debate was, Resolved: "That the McNary Haugen Bill Should be Enacted by an Act of Congress." The afiirmative team was composed of Phyllis Evans, and Harold Bowen. It was unde- feated in its engagements with Bell and Torrance High Schools. The neg- ative team, Rollin McBurney and Bruce Whited broke even with one victory and one defeat. In the next round, on the question, Resolved: "That the iniiuence of Jazz is Detrimental to Modern Youth," Allan Lind travelled to Bell alone, due to the sickness of his colleague, and brought home a well earned de- cision of 2 - 1. Meanwhile Phyllis Evans and Bruce Whited were at home wresting a 3 - 0 decision from George Washington High School. Later in the year Raymond Miller and Allan Lind duplicated this feat and tookia 3-0 decision from Washington. , X On the question, Resolved: "That the Installment Plan of Buying is Detrimental to the Buying Public of America," Banning,s aiiirmative team, Raymond Miller and Allan Lind defeated Franklin High, and the negative Page Fiffy-one ORATORY Five of Banning's most popular students, Mary Swift, Phyllis Evans, Allan Lind, Kenneth Miller, and Ruth Inglis competed in the Oratorical Contest at Banning High. This was the first elimination and decided who would be Banning's representative. Mary Swift was the judge's choice and represented Banning on April 12 in the District Contest. The judges were Mrs. Mary Harker, representative of Woman's Club, Miss Florence Kelly, principal of Fries Ave. School, and Mr. George Shunk, attorney at law in Wilmington. team, Phyllis Evans and Katherine Gillman lost a decision to Belmont High. In the next round on the question, Resolved: "That the Influence of Jazz is Detrimental to Modern Youth," Banning's affirmative, Phyllis Evans and Rollin McBurney won a 3 - 0 decision from Franklin, while the negative team, Raymond Miller and Allan Lind lost to L. A. High School. Both Franklin and Los Angeles High schools are much larger than Banning. The next question to be debated in the City League is, Resolved: "That the Newspaper Publicity of Crime Tends to Promote Crime." Phineas Banning will meet Venice and Belmont High Schools. Both teams are working for success. Page Fifty-I wo SENIOR PLAY CAST THIRTEENTH CHAIR On March'22, 1929, the curtain rose for the presentation of the Senior Play, 'The Thirteenth Chair." Never before and never again in the history of Phineas Banning High will there be a school play to equal it. The characters were supremely Well played starring Gladys Mc-Niece, the beautiful leading ladyg Raymond Miller, the heroic leading man, Martha Winchester, an unequaled medium, John McLaren, the brilliant inspector, Vera Travis, the charming hostessg Rollin McBurney, the gracious host, Otto Yearick, the murdererg Jean Cameron, LaRue Foster, Doris Fohl, Mildred Gordon, Aaron Boyce, Walter Sawyer, Phyllis Evans, and Allan Lind, other members of the cast. A capacity audience and an extremely fine cast united in making a suc- cessful event. It will be a long time before the residents of Wilmington and vicinity forget this splendid piece of Work. This never-to-be-forgotten play was under the direction of Miss Minnie Cohen. Every part Was extremely Well done. A matinee Was given on the morn- ing of March 21st, This was really the dress rehearsal. It was open to Junior High students only and was well attended. Just a school house tall That is loved by all Banning High we sing of you Through our high school days and on down through life We'll be ever loyal and true California sunshine smile on you Mid ocean breeze and skies of blue, Just a school tall That is loved by all And a place Where dreams come true. Page Fifty-three Kermit Parker is the efficient stage manager of Banning. Bob Land- grave, his assistant, is not a bit behind in efficiency. The stage crew con- sists of Walter Sawyer, La Rue Foster, Harry Pearson, Albert Scott and Fenwick Kendall. The crew never fails to produce on time. Mr. Farleigh, the advisor and brains 'of the crew, succeeded in getting a special period set aside for the stage crew to work. This resulted in some "bigger and better" settings for the plays. The crew has been very busy for the past year, putting up sets for both day and night schools and keeping up with aud. calls, too. Few students realize the importance of the stage crew. The stage crew helps every department of the school. ' JUNIOR PLAY A I On April 19th the Junior Class did honor to themselves and to the school by presenting f'The Man on the Box," a snappy, wholesome play, well adapted to high school production. The cast was well distributed as to talent, all humorous, a few starring in abundant conversation, and with varied impersonations. Catherine Horgan and Ellsworth Lewis carried the leads. Wesley Patton and Ralph Smale did honor to Irish dialect, giv- ing it an accent that only the natives of Erin know and Denny Driskill portrayed the ever typical Judge. Hal White, Willie Stamper, Louis Re- gan, Mike Doganierre, Ralph Reed, Margaret Mills, Katherine Snyder completed their share of the cast. Miss McWilliams, a most capable director, under whose guidance the play was produced, was assisted in coaching by Mrs. M. Inglis James, long a leading instructor in voice culture and tone production in Boston. Page Fiffy-fo11r THE BAND The band, under the leadership of Mr. Hansen, has had lots of publicity this year. It was not satisfied to merely furnish their martial airs around the school. It had to break into the movies. Irvin Smith, taking the part of major, led the group 'through several numbers in front of the clicking camera. Anythfng may happen in connec- tion With this ambitious group. THE ORCHESTRA The orchestra, under the competent leadership of Mr. Hanson, has sky- rocketed to success. The orchestra this year is something that We are all proud of. It is better than ever before. We could not ask for greater co-operation from any organization. It is always Willing to furnish music when it is needed, and in a Way that delights. Page Fiffj'-fizr GIRLS' GLEE CLUB The Girls' Glee Club spent many hours practicing diligently on the music of Mr. Hansen's opera, "The Prince of Seville." The Girls sang for the February graduation exercises and showed that much time had been spent in preparation. At the boys' athletic assembly, they again appeared and sanghtwo' numbers. This was their first appearance in their new uniforms of W ite. BUYS' GLEE CLUB This organization Was created to introduce a bigger and better spirit for Banning, and to give all of the boy students an opportunity to improve their voices. Pagc Fifly-xix PRIZE STORY-ABDULLAI-I HAREMS The ship was docked in Abdullah. Eloise Fleming, a young society nov- elist, was strolling the deck with the young Captain Randall whose heart she had completely captured. The voyage was uneventful and Eloise, who was seeking thrills, was bored. "I would not advise one to wander around this port without an escort," cautioned the captain. "You don't suppose I came all this way for the trip do you Y" questioned Eloise. "I am going to investigate a harem." The captain gasped, "Young American girls are not safe in this port, Miss Fleming. Perhaps you will allow me to accompany you on your es- capade?" The thought flashed through Eloise's mind that perhaps the captain had a motive of his own for trying to frighten her. Well, she would not be fooled. She was going alone. "Thank you, Captain Randall, but I am searching for material for my new book, and I desire to go alone." She turned away from him and fled down the gang plank. The dock was swarming with beggars gowned in turbans and filthy robes. Most of them, were cruelly crippled and distorted. They reminded one of an army of bats swooping down upon their prey as they stampeded the more prosperous tourists. Eloise, having avoided these beggars, walked into a narrow crowded street where she found almost as many beggars as she had seen at the dock. American women there were, yes, but all had several escorts. Eloise's courage ebbed a bit, but she was too proud to turn back. She was pleased to see a sign marked "Information in English" and hurried to the booth and inquired where she might find a harem open for in-spection. The Hindu in the booth looked surprised. He immediately concluded that she was an American thrill-seeker who was unaware of the customs of Abdullah. He knew her type. He replied slowly and distinctly, "I shall be pleased to take you to one." Although his complexion was lighter than the Hindu beggars she had seen along the way, his manner and appearance did not assure Eloise of security, but she was determined to see a harem. 'T will appreciate it if you will be so kindf' she replied hesitatingly. Her tall and expressionless guide placed her in a carriage drawn by an old sway-back mule. The journey was short, but Eloise was glad when he turned her over to an-ugly old woman to whom he gave directions in a queer language. Turning to Eloise he said curtly, "This woman will take you to the harem. Good-bye." Eloise followed the woman through spacious halls and rooms which fitted in perfectly with descriptions she had read of Hindu palaces. Her companion disappeared and she wandered along, alone. She pushed open a door which lead into a room different from the rest. It had no wiadows and but one door. The light entered through a transom in the door which was striped with iron bars. The room was encircled with rich drapes. Turn- ing quickly she found the door had locked. She banged upon the opening for several seconds. Realizing her predicament, she calmed down and tried to think. What could she do? She sank down upon a couch and wondered what was to become of her. Maybe she was going to be made a member of a harem. Ooh !-How she hated harems. She wished she had taken Captain Randall's advice. It seemed ages later when she heard someone pounding on her prison Page Fifty-:eLfc1z PRIZE POEM HAPPINESS If all the world would heed my call And of its greatness I might choose I'd shun the rest for happiness And be assured I could not lose. Life's utmost is a happy home With comfort, love, and beauty pure So that, when tired from work well done, None could resist the hearth-Iirels lure. A wife to welcome with a kiss A heart so pure, so fond, and good One who would cause a man to strive Until she said. "I knew you could." A little child quite well endowed With ample share of Nature's wealth An open face, a kindly heart, Straight-forward ways devoid of stealth. Why should I seek for fame or wealth? Why strive to gain ambition's crown? To have and give great happiness Is better far than high renown. DENNIE DRISKILL ,ll.l-l- door which suddently collapsed. Her mind cleared, and she heard, "Eloise darling, look at me. Oh honey, I shall never leave you again." She looked up into the face of Captain Randall. On the way back to the ship she told him she had lost her desire to search for thrills and would be happy just to stay with him forever, but she wanted to know how he had rescued her from the horrible place. Randall replied solemnly, "I followed you to the booth and seeing you leave with that Hindu, I thought I had better go along to see if things went right. I watched the -proceedings from a spot where I could not be seen. When the Hindu left and later the old woman return-ed I thought I had better look for you. That's all. You know the rest of the story." Eloise sat up and looked around. She was in the same wagon she had been in a short time ago, but she was too happy to be curious. Randall muttered grufily, "I am going to leave you for a second. I have something to settle with the man in the information booth." He climbed out of the wagon, walked over to the booth and slipped the guide a roll of bills and said, "Thanks a lot, Harry: it worked. We are to be married as soon as we get back to the ship? A by Louise Capolzmgo Page Fiffy-eight PRINT SHOP "The print shop is a Work shopf' Anyone Who has even peeked through its door realizes the truth of this slogan. While the shop is a part of the regular school course it is organized as nearly as possible on a commercial basis. The shop is producing work for student body, office, night school, and every department of the school. This Work ranges from the simplest ticket up to two color placards-one of Which, Kiplings "If", which was presented to various civic organizations of the community, received much praise. The shop produces the "Port Light", a Weekly paper devoted to school activities. The annual, "Pilot Wheel" is a very large undertaking and is laid out by this department. This great range of work gives the student of Printing a real contact with actual Work j obs, and developes him in craftsmanship, speed, accuracy and ability to Work. The shop produces about 552500 Worth of Work each year. Mr. Kingsbury is a printer of many year's experience, both in newspaper and job work. His vvork in community service with young people and among apprentices of his trade gives him an understanding of young people. This brings results. Page Fifty-nine B E The Auto Shop in our school is one of the busiest departments. Besides making fine polished and tempered tools for the exhibits the stage scenery is made there under the supervision of Mr. Farleigh, the instructor. At the Long Beach Exposition and many other places, our auto shop Work Won considerable comment. Carl D'Ambrosia made an attractive ink and pen holder which was silver plated. It was presented to Mrs. Susan M. Dorsey, Superintendent of our schools at that time. Louis Parra also made a pen and ink holder and presented it to Mrs. Pierce, superin- tendent of our district. Under the direction of Mr. Braman, the Electric Shop is growing in activity and popularity with each quarter. It satisfies the desire of many to build a radio set. Some of the boys have completed revvinding motors that can be used at home. Besides building transformers of various de- signs and sizes a Working knowledge of the Ways of electricity is obtained by the making of many other projects. Come and see the boys at Work. Page Sixly I I WOOD SHOP The wood shop is always aiming at bigger and better things, but one of the best things this year was not so big. Harold Miller, one of the February graduates, constructed a model of a Curtis "Hawk" airplane, which was such a fine job that, when he put it in competition with about two hundred other models, at the Broadway Department store, it took the second prize. This prize 'consisted of a trip to San Diego in one of the passenger planes. Many other fine jobs are being turned out in the shop all the time. In the evening also, the wood shop is a beehive of industry. Pleasant experience, information, developed ability, and useful products are some of the advantages connected with shop work, together with the inspiration of Mr. Sanborn. MECHANICAL DRAWING DEPT. Every boy who enters Banning has an opportunity to try his hand at Mechanical Drawing during the seventh or eighth grade, or he may elect it in the Senior high. In the seventh year a ten week's course, two consecutive periods a day, is given to every boy. At this time he can become familiar with what con- stitutes Mechanical Drawing and soon learns if he is fitted to go further in the work if he desires to do so. When taken as an elective in the ninth and tenth years, a boy spends his first term in studying the fundamentals of Mechanical Drawing. At the end of this time he decides whether he wishes to specialize in Machine Design or Architecture. The eleventh and twelfth year is spent in special study of the chosen branch.

NIGHT SCHOOL Phineas Banning Evening High School, under the direction of Mr. Winn, has been successful in improving the community as a Whole and has given an ever ready hand to aid the local people in obtaining that most preci- ous gift of man-Education! "The Whole Tovvn's Talking," a dramatic production, was given March 8, by the Public Speaking class. It was a huge success both financially and in accomplishment. Many other classes included in the commercial, domes- tic, and English departments have done a great deal of Work in their in- dividual lines. Not only is work carried on during night sessions, but also there is a China Painting class from two to four in the afternoon Where some very beautiful and Worth While china is produced, and an evening Physical Education schedule during the spring from the hours of three to six, when baseball and other activities are carried on. At Wilmington Park Grammar School an English Citizenship class is conducted four nghts a Week for the purpose of informing the foreign element in regard to correct speech, what constitues good citizenship, and in giving general information and instruction which help.

Mary Swift With Mr. Welch as advisor, the Scholarship Society of Banning, Chapter 83, has become one of the largest as well as most active organization in school. During the past year, the Society enjoyed many social events, including a regional banquet at the beginning of the year, a theater party, and a real party of Chapter 83. At the regional banquet, Banning enter- tained twelve other schools in the district. The decorations were carried out in Halloween style. In December, our Chapter sent six delegates to the State Convention held at Polytechnic High School, at Los Angeles. Our delegates were: Willie Stamper, Ardythe Horney, Phyllis Tyacke, Florence Henderson, Earl Chamberlain, and Phyllis Evans. The following month our Chapter was represented at Gardenais regional banquet. Woodrow Wilson School in Long Beach invited us to attend its next regional banquet. A goodly number of delegates also represented us at the district theater party in Long Beach. At the Southern California Convention in San Bernardino during the Spring, we were also represented. Chapter 83 now consists of sixty-seven members, so it was decided to have a party for its own Chapter in the cafeteria. Everyone had a good time. The membership during the past semester is the largest in the history of the school. In fact, we have the second largest membership in the state in proportion to our enrollment. Banning has reason to be proud of its Scholarship Society and its diligent and able advisor, Mr. Welch.

This was Won through the hard work of Louis Erickson, Victor Larrieux and Helen McGinley. These people were rated fourth, fifth and siqgth individuals. The contest that Was held at Riverside was one to be long remembered by those who participated in it. One of the several teams from Banning was the Dairy Product team. The members of this team Were, Don Hulbert, Captain, Gareld Green, Eldon Tovvner and Dale Wright. At this time Don Hulbert Won a silver medal, Eldon Towner a bronze medal and the other boys Won class ribbons. Our fruit judging team consisted of Katherine Snyder, Catherine Hor- gan and Bernice Keville. The girls, as a team, took third place and Cather- ine Horgan Won the second high individual ribbon. The plant identiiication team consisted of Victor Larrieux, Helen Mc Ginley, Louis Erickson and Carl Bjork. Here they Won the first prize cup and many high individuals.

Mr. Alford, boys director of San Pedro Y.M.C.A., is at the head of all school Hi-Y Clubs in the harbor dis- trict. Mr. Carl Lewis is the advisor for Wilmington. He has taken the place of our old friend, Mr. Van Zandt. Christian fellowship and service to the school are the principalmobject- ives of this organization. Its basketball team, under the leadership of Joe Duran, Won second place in the Hi-Y league. Many trips and conven- tions have been attended by these boys of Banning. Special programs dur- ing the year have been presented for the high school. The Hi-Y certainly has Won a place and has made a name for itself at Banning. Pa ee Six! y-sewn l . Our organization has been named S. P. Q. R. which means Senatus Popu- lusque Romans tThe Senate and the Roman Peopleb. The oiiicers of the club correspond with officers of the Roman Senate. There are two consuls, Ardythe Hrorney and Katherine Snyder, who preside over the meetings and arrange the programs, two censors, Dennie Driskill and Fred Stevens, who have charge of the membership and keep the records, one quaestor, Olive Tyacke, who has charge of the club finances.

We Were to have twenty members plus our faculty advisors: Mrs. Pearson, Miss Hall, and Miss Sidebotliam. Since then We have done more than have a good time. We made curtains, cushions, and rugs for the girls' and teachers' rest rooms. Also our membership has increased three members making a total of twenty- six. We had a Weiner bake down at Terminal, too. Page Sixly-nine VARSITY LETTERMEN'S CLUB In the past years many attempts have been made to organizze a club for the varsity lettermen. This year this has become a reality. Coach Patz, faculty advfsor, is at the head of the organization. It is through his efforts that the charter members were selected. A constitution was drawn up. Officers were elected. They are: Arne Aho, presidentg Charlemagne Fuette, vice presidentg John McLaren, secre- taryg Wayne Pendergast, treasurerg and Milo McCord, sergeant-at-arms. The purpose of the Varsity Club is to maintain good sportsmanshipg foster true school spirit, sponsor athletics, and honor the varsity letter award. The meetings are held twice a month at the school. Some of the problems which the club has discussed are taking care of inter-class sports, wearing of varsity sweaters, methods of handling crowds in limited bleacher space, etc. A final banquet and initiation is planned, which is to be held in the latter part of June. At this initiation, members will be taken in, new officers elected, and a farewell given to the lettermen who are leaving. This is the beginning of a club that will be the most noted organization in the high school.

Athletics are valuable aids to education. The athlete is judged as much by his standards of character as by his athletic ability. A true athlete should have irreproachable character, leadership, enthusiasm, knowledge of technique, and keen powers of observation. He must be interested in sports for sport's sake and not for winning games at any cost. He must be a "man's man." It is of such timber that our future national leaders are selected. -M. R. HELBACH. In reviewing the athletic year, I wish to congratulate the Student Body for the support it gave its team, and to commend the athletes for the real fighting spirit they displayed on and off the athletic field. The Student Body backed its teams to the very last as shown by the cheering crowd present when the final whistle blew ending the football year for a losing yet fighting team. Basketball teams, Track teams, and the Baseball team all received your support. You have established a tradition for future Student Bodies to equal. I congratulate you. Athletes, you who have represented your school in every field of ath- letics, have also established a record for future athletes of Banning to maintain. I am proud of every football boy who fought throughout the season without a whimper, although you were beaten every game. You are game, and the time will come when a just reward will be yours. This same type of fighting was present on all your teams, all of which were q'uite successful. Your opponents recognized you as fighters, a tradition you have fought for, one you must uphold yourselvesfand one you need demand of all opponents. I commend you. Coach Patz. Page Sz've11iy-fine Page Seveniy-iwo FOOTBALL TEAM BANNING AT NARBONNE The Pilot rooters were out in large numbers. Stimulated by Coach Patz the day before in the auditorium, the odds against Lomita were almost even, with the Nathanielites holding a slight lead. The Patzmen, although beaten by Narbonne, held everyone breathless with the hand of football which they showed in first canto. McCord again displayed the fight which all loyal Banningites have seen. Score: Banning--0, Narbonne-66 JACOB RHS AT BANNING Weight proved the big factor in this struggle. Signals were cabled. Out of the cloud of dirt and grime could be seen a tall, heavy football player with several antagonists hanging on. Arne Aho, the light Banning half- back, kept tackling the dark giant for all he was worth. After a few yards the big gridder would fall. The Pilots charged and passed, but to no avail. The Riismen were always there. Charles Dupuy caught several good passes in their conflict, but passes alone can not win. Henry Holmes played a very good game and should prove a formidable foe against the Jacobmen next year. Score: Riis-185 Banning-O. BELL AT BANNING This contest proved far too outsided, the Eagles being very much too strong for the Patzmen. With LaRue Foster playing a game equalled only by McCord against Jordan, the chances at first seemed very good. However the weak can not hold out against the strong, and so the Pilots went down to a bad defeat. But the spirit of our players and rooters was indomitable, even with such a score as 50-0. JORDAQN AT BANNING This game was one which every man on the team expected to win, but was lost in spite of all efforts. The team wanted to defeat the Jordan men just to average the not expected beating which Banning received last year on the loose dusty field of Watts. Milo McCord proved the outstanding player of the day. Charlie Fuette played the game for which he is known, the steady line plunges and fine tackles which only Fuette can do in such style. Even though outclassed, Phineas Banning was out fought. Score: Banning-0: Jordan 30. BANNING AT TORRANCE The first league game started by Banning's receiving the kick-off from Torrance. Potter, our captain, carried the ball to our forty yard line. Duran passed to Stockman, who carried the ball for forty yards. That marked the brand of ball and the spirit which our gridders used through- out the season. Even though failing to beat Torrance, Phineas Banning managed to hold them scoreless. The stars of the game for Banning were Stockman, Duran, who wrenched his shoulder and was out of the lineup for the whole season except for the last contest, McCord, and Fuette. Also Hal White made several of the best tackles seen throughout all the games. Score. Banning-Og Torrance-0. Page Severity-threz' GARDENA AT BANNING The hardest contest of our season was played on Travis Field, against Gardena. Our boys went in to the game knowing that their chances for a win over Gardena were very slight. Even with such thoughts in mind our pigskin jugglers put up a pronounced fight throughout the entire Marine League season. Even though they went through without scoring against the other schools, our boys have the privilege of saying they can battle when the test comes. Gardena had the advantage over our team, their average being 180 pounds and ours only 150. Although we lost this game the Pilot rooters showed spirit by staying with the boys and yelling 'long and loudly. Score: Gardena-32g Banning-0. BANNING AT WASHINGTON This was the most crucial game that Banning's gridmen experienced. The first quarter was uneventful, the ball being pushed back and forth down the field, Washington having a slight advantage. In the second quar- ter, Washington had the advantage with our own Wesley Patton making tackles that were paramount in the result which they attained. The third quarter was to the advantage of the Pilots containing many thrills and long end runs by Aho. In the fourth canto events happened rapidly, Banning coming the nearest to scoring, being on the opponents one-yard line. Ban- ning won this game morally, but the score was tied. Score: Banning--Og Washington-0. Page Scfrcnfy-fozn CLASS UA" BASKETBALL TEAM In all types of athletic games, it seems that Banning's athletes need an extra push to put them over the winning line. This year the Varsity has lacked that something to put them over. With such men back to strengthen the squad as Charles Swain, Captain, Walter Sawyer, Charles Gongelez, John Webb, Harold Bowen, and Ernest Gill, the rumors were to the effect that Banning had a championship squad but these rumors failed to mater- ialize. A ' At the beginning of the season, a setback was realized when Jacob R" 11s trimmed the squad. In spite of the loss of games, Banning's heavies recei- ved the full support of the school. With only the loss of two men, the team has great confidence of leading the league in their next year's games.

Peter Mehren, Captain the first half of the season, tried, and almost succeeded in leading his followers to a league win, but fell back because of flu in the squad. Because Mehren had the misfortune to break his arm at Bell, the team was further handicapped and did not get a championship accredited. Although Harold Teeple, the clever Banning Cheer leader, was elected to pilot the Banningites light weight for the remainder of the season, the one hundred and twenty-five pounder failed to come out of the slump, and the two year championship which was won the two previous years was lost. The second weighters, although failing to come through winners, put by as good a fight in the game as did the elongated Varsity Cagers.

At the outset of the season, it seemed as if Coach Patz had formed an aggregation that would not go far. Contrary to all thoughts the young Pilots marched to a higher score in wins than did any teams this season. Sherman Schwartz headed such men as Jack Malseed, Ferrin Sion, Evan Adams, Pat Horgan, Joe Martinez, and Arthur Willey. The little men made a repu- tation for themselves and Coach Patz by going further in the league than had any team since ,27, beating seemingly unbeatable teams.

Our little one hundred and ten pounders, headed by Rollin lVIcBurney, would have brought home the bacon. The Whole team, made up of Cheney Goldie, Rollin McBurney, Earl Chamberlin, Frank Winchester, Ramon Garcia, and Floyd Turley, put up a firm and determined iight against their antagonists of the Marine Lea- gue, and failed only by a margin. Many of these casaba tossers had little experience except in the case of Chamberlin, Goldie, and McBurney. Even so, such a handicap failed to stop them, and they managed to pile up large scores against their oppon- ents.

I J YELL LEADERS The Yell Leaders for P.B.H.S. for the past two semesters have been the same. They include a Varsity Yell Leader, Harold Teeple, and his two assistants, Mike Doganiere and an Souley Through the past semester the Yell Leaders have tried to stimulate school spirit into the Student Body. They have been present at every game to lead yells and pep up the watchers. Football is a very live sport and its Yell Leaders have put the student behind the peppy players. f The plans, new signals, and motions, have all been worked out to the best advantage of the cause. After some practice they have been able to Work together to some extent with the Student Body. PEP CLUB The Pep Club was organized by J. G. Van Zandt at the first semester. It was an organization to pep up the games of our school. Under the won- derful direction of Mr. Van Zandt, it progressed rapidly. The Pep club held the meetings at noon in the auditorium of the High School every Tuesday and Thursday. The program consisted of songs and yells. After some weeks' work the enrollment increased to a very large extent, and it claims responsibility for our present wonderful school spirit. Page Sc' L'c'111fy-zzine ! I 2 E Page' Eighty CLASS "A" TRACK TEAM Ernest Gill, an able pole vaulter and high jumper, headed the Baton Wielders of the A group and managed to lead his men to the highest berth which Banning has ever occupied in the track field. Every man on the team came out and fought for letters and overcame other schools in their attempt. With the Marine League track and field events which came to Banning this year came the knowledge that Coach Helbach was held in high esteem, for Banning was appointed to receive all other schools in a final conference meet.

The team, led by Coach Eugene Patz, played clean and showed the true Banning spirit by taking defeat without a yell and never quitting. The season this year was changed a little and there were two games each week. The season lasted for the same length of time, but by playing each team twice it afforded a better chance to prove the real winner. At the risk of their comfort and with sore muscles, our gladiators went out on the diamond with grim determination and played games that would have done credit to big leagues. BANNING AT RHS Coach Patz led his grave-faced cleat arbiters to a close win over the Riis men. With the infield slowing down slightly, the twirler lacked the proper support but came through to bring the team back to natural playing and forcing the Jacobmen to take a close defeat from the Banning nine. Score: Banning 8, Riis 5. Page Eighty-Iwo V JORDAN AT BANNING With Albert Scott again twirling for the Patzmen, Banning failed to come through with a win. This game was played very loosely. A few changes were made on the regular lineup. Even though our men failed to win this contest, our men played superb baseball, with only a few errors which could not have been easily averted. Score: Jordan 12, Banning 0. JORDAN AT BANNING In this contest the loss through graduation of our steady pitcher, Ralph Mele, was felt. Although the Pilots fought through the whole nine cantos, we failed to win this game, even though Banning was leading in the first few rounds. Milo McCord, our steady catcher, smacked them all over. Our team went down to a close defeat. Earl Chamberlin maintained his same one hundred percent at bat and clouted out several lengthy hits. Score: Banning 4, Jordan 7. BANNING AT TORRANCE With Albert Scott heaving balls that the Torrance cleatment could not see, Banning won by a heavy score over their first opponents. The new type of season, with each school meeting twice in one week, serves to prove the best team and also to make the men try for a bigger score in the second game. Coach Patz deserves full credit for rounding out a team that played superb baseball. Score: Banning 34, Torrance 8. TORRANCE AT BANNING In the second round of Marine League play, Banning also proved its worth by taking the second game against the Torrance "Horse Hide Jug- glersf' This contest was practically a battle between Pitcher Gonzales and the hurler of Torrance, but the Pilots came out winners against a team that hoped to score a win over our team and thus even things. With this game played on our own field, the men proved worthy to the weather and rounded the bases for sixteen pellets. Score: Banning 16, Torrance 4. RHS AT BANNING Thisigame was chuck full of spectacular plays, alongside with excellent baseball for both teams. For as I heard a bystander remark, f'Those teams are playing real baseball," so naturally with Riis on the shorter end of the score, it looks as if Banning played even greater baseball than the enthus- iastic bystander had said. Milo McCord pulled one of the cleverest plays seen during the entire season, a play from left field on a catch to Stanzier on first for a forced out, retiring the side. Score: Banning 10, Riis 2. Page Eighty-Ihree Pagr Eighty-fall GIRLS' VOLLEY BALL The volleyball championship was won by the Winter Class of '30. This team was lead to victory by the ever popular "Took" Winchester. The high and mighty seniors proclaimed themselves victors in the hot clash for interclass basketball championship. This team was successfully piloted by "Dutch" Smale, our girl athletic genius. BASKETBALL Most noteworthy of all is the Senior girls' inter-class basketball cham- pionship composed of Phyllis Tyacke, Phyllis Evans, Tookie Winchester, Catherine Shirey, Dutch Smale and Marian Packard, captain. The team defeated San Pedro and Torrance. This remarkable group of female ath- letes holds a record of which all others are envious, and that is-never once did they go down in defeat before the onslaught of another team. GIRLS' BASEBALL Baseball continues to be the most popular of the sports. The turnout for the teams is extremely large and a very peppy series is planned among the various groups. We can earnestly say that this year has proven and displayed to ad- vantage the excellent moral and physical qualities of Banning's girls. We have been progressive and we look forward to even greater success next year under our faithful and inspiring director, Miss McCabe. SOCCER The Girls' Soccer Team of P. B. H. S. won from Narbonne twice. The iirst game being played at Narbonne, score 3 to 2. The second game was at Banning, which resulted in a score in favor of, Banning. Being coached by Miss McCabe, physical education director, the girls showed hearty co-operation and fine fighting. This is the first year that this sport has been played by the Banning girls and it went over big. Pug: Eigblyffizr GIRLS, PLAY DAY GIRLS' SPORTS AND PLAY DAYS I The weaker sex is a thing of the past. Looking over our fine crop of girl athletes you will realize this. Sports at Banning High have produced superior girls of healthy body and mind. Most popular of all the sport events of the year are the Play Days. Ban- ning High up to this date of writing has won two Play Days and is looking forward to a third victory in the near future. Narbonne High .acted as hostess at the first Play Day, which was held November 28, 1928 at 2:30 P. M. Our girls brought home a decided victory for Banning High. A good time was experienced by both sides. The Nar- bonne G.A.A. girls showed a splendid Spirit. On January 23, 1929, Banning High's G. A. A. was hostess to three other schools-Gardena, Narbonne, and Torrance. The program included a posture drill, competitive Sports which were volleyball, basketball, speed- ball, Soccer, cageball, relays, and various races. After these contests, the girls met in the cafeteria and had a rally and refreshments. The winning school, Banning High, was announced. Social dancing in the main hall followed. At five o'clock the taps were sounded, closing a most successful Play Day which united the schools in a bond of good sportsmanship and friendship. Besides the contests among schools, class contests are held during the year in volleyball, basketball, soccer, and baseball. Much euthusiasm is shown in these inte:-class contests. I Oh how I hate to get up in the morning Oh how I hate to drag out to school When a shout rings in the hall And I know its father's call For me to get up, I hate to get up I hate to drag out in the morning And tho' its not right It gives me a fright When Pm called to recite in school. II Oh Such a miserable looking report card! How can I figure to make my grade With a card that's mostly E's And the rest all C's and D's? But I hate to get up, I hate to get up I hate to drag out in the morning And tho' its not right It gives me a fright When I'm called to recite in school. Page Eiglyfy-six Wi?

The dinner was served by Miss Hall. It included grape fruit cocktail, roast pork, mashed potatoes, peas and car- rots, biscuits, jelly, apple pie and coffee. John Morrison, the chairman of the evening, introduced Mr. Helback, the toastmaster for the affair. He told of the varsity basketball game at Narbonne that day and also spoke of Banningfs football rating. Coach Patz was present with his bride. He gave a wonderful talk on character building through sports. This was the initial appearance of Mrs. Patz at any of our school affairs. Mr. Travis gave a very pleasing talk and intro- duced the speaker of the evening, Mr. Moore, Vice principal of Polly High at Long Beach, and president of the I. C. F., an organization which is trying to help the eligible student. Mr. Moore gave a splendid address on the history of football in Southern California. Charlemagne Fuette, Frenchy, next year's football captain and nick- named Napoleon that night by Mr. Travis, made the students feel con- fident of his worth by his inspirational speech. The spice of the program was made by Tim Berry, the human canary, whistling, John McLaren, the second Al Jolson, singing a few selections, and Gordon Willey sliding the trombone. All the entertainers were accompanied by the ever popular Mr. Hansen, the jolly good fellow of the school. Many of the fair sex of the faculty attended the banquet and seemed to enjoy themselves as much as the boys. The close of the banquet marked the close of Banning's football season. SCHOLARSHIP BANQUET THE SCHOLARSHIP BANQUET On the eve of October 26, 1928, the Phineas Banning Scholarship Society was host to a regional counsel banquet held in the cafeteria. Representa- tives from the societies of Narbonne, San Pedro, Venice, Redondo, Hunt- ington Park, Compton, Gardena, Torrance, Long Beach Polytechnic, Woodrow Wilson, and Inglewood were present. After the feasting and after a well planned program, the meeting was turned over to the president of the district. Election of officers for the spring term ensued. The results of this important election brought victory to Banning. We have a member of our own society as president of this district. This person is Florence Henderson. It is a great honor for our school. THE CAFETERIA By the great increase in the number of patrons and by the increase of quanity and quality of foods, one may readily see that this department has been even more successful this year than last. The money cleared from the cafeteria has also benefitted us in another way. Various pur- chases have been made to improve cafeteria equipment. It has been said that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. Undoubtedly the cafeteria has aided our welfare. The girls of the cafeteria always give smiling, helpful service. They look beautiful in their white uniforms. Miss Hall is an efficient director. Our school is fortunate in having her. Page Eiglvfy-xczfmz MOVIES Banning again came to the front. She has entered the lime light of the movie world. Sometime ago our school was hailed as the first city high school to present a program over the radio. Now the school is just in line to produce a school film. TheUnique Film Company of Los Angeles did the work under the auspices of the local merchants. Definite work on the nlm started in January. The first scene was taken in the Auditorium, showing the procedure of a first class student body meeting. The next scene included the band as it would appear at a football game on Travis Field. Following these scenes, shots were taken of the various classes and in the activities namely, the agriculture department, and the typing room, and science rooms. Interwoven throughout the school and business life of Wilmington, a small drama was portrayed, with several of Banning's most popular students taking part. La Rue Foster and Patty Horgan occupied the leading roles. Louise Capolunga played the part of the vamp, and Tim Berry the villian. The minor parts include Evan Mitchell and Albert Shell. SENIOR BONFIRE FOOTBALL RALLY Excitement prevailed at Banning when the Seniors built a bonfire after dark, November 15th, to celebrate a football game with Narbonne, which was to occur the next day. Yells, songs, war dances, serpentines, and even fire engines added spirit to the event. The flaming fire was at its height when three fire engines whizzed up the street, stopped and put out the fire. It happened so quickly, hardly anyone knew what it was all about. Some commotion followed, with arguments galore among everyone, including firemen and policemen. There was some misunderstanding over the fire permit and when it was cleared up, the students built another fire. Al- though this flame was not so bright, the water had not dampened the spirit of the affair. About two weeks later Assistant Chief Kelly of the Los Angeles Fire Department appeared at a special aud call and explained the whole truth of the bonfire. It seemed the granting of the fire permit had not gone through the head ofiice and consequently, orders were given to extinguish the fire. The experience taught our school to do everything regular when dealing with public officials. The occasion ended with friendly spirit on both sides. A COLLEGE JOKE The boys of the February senior class put on a skit, giving a glimpse of college life in a hilarious comedy. The play concerned two Upper Class- men and a Freshman. One of the Upper Classmen promised the Freshman that he would fix him up with a date. Instead of getting a date with a girl for him, he had his chum dress up like a girl. The ruse was not discovered by the Freshman until he had made a complete fool of himself. Foster Rice ..........................................................

The class president of the hosts gave a farewell toast which was answered by Marian Packard, Senior class president. Table decorations were carried out which celebrated Flag Day. A wonderful program, given by students of Ban- ning, was the main feature after the delicious luncheon was served. The outfgoing Seniors will hold the memory of this afternoon for many years. SENIOR-SENIOR LUNCHEON The summer class of '29 established a new tradition in the school this year by giving the winter class of '29 a luncheon on the day of its gradua- tion, February 1. This was called the Senior-Senior Luncheon. The luncheon was served by Miss Sidebotham in the school library. The dishes on the menu were named for the guests. This added to the occasion. A program consisting of numbers from the following occured throughout the luncheon: The Banning Quartette, John McLaren, Chuck Schrouder, George Potter, Inez Noonan, Russ Soule, Gordon Willey, Amy Prakel, and Mary Schwartz. Mr. Hansen accompanied the boys. Mr. Mason, prominent business man in Wilmington, was the speaker of the afternoon and gave a very interesting farewell to the graduating class. Mr. Travis spoke a few words also. Miss Climie, class teacher of Winter '29, gave a toast to the seniors, which Mrs. Griffith, class teacher of Summer '29, returned. Florence Henderson, Senior class president, presided as chairman for the afternoon. This luncheon was such a big success that the Seniors are looking forward to more of them. CHRISTMAS PLAY One of the outstanding entertainments given at Banning this year was a Christmas play, "Why the Chimes Rang." With the ability of Mr. Han- sen, who produced it, the genius of Mrs. Lewrenz, who painted the scenes, and the help of Mr. Ferleigh, who arranged the beautiful setting, it proved to be a great success. The play was presented for the students in the morn- ijnghand for the parents in the afternoon. There was a good attendance ot times. The main characters of the play were Joseph Cadenbach, Frank Mohns, Otto Yearick, and Ruth Inglis. The characters in pantomime were Evelyn Mohns, Malcolm Goldie, John McLaren, Mary Swift, Georgia Bressee, Sthalie Dunn, Jean Monroe, Bert Le Donne, Avel Herman, and Howard immons. 'At thelend of the play the Girls' League gave its offering of Christmas gifts which were to go to the poor. Thus the students received a better undertanding of Christmas and a better feeling toward the meaning of the giving of Christmas gifts. J Page Eighty-11i11e STUDENT BODY STORE The Student Body Store is one of the main financial institutions of the school. The purpose is to sell supplies to the student body at a small profit. This money is used to keep the school in operation as far as athletics and other things not provided for by the school board. The personnel of this institution consist of the following students: Manager, Rollin McBerneyg salesmen, Willis Peter, Ralph Smale, Edna Bixler, Edna Bond, Mary Swift, Ellsworth Lewis and Lois Hulbert. Mrs. Marks is the faculty advisor. The store is open in the morning before school, noon periods and after school, making it convenient for all students to trade there. The work does not consist only of selling, but also of taking inventory, keep- ing records, and other duties similar to any business house. The first semester Ralph Smale managed the store but resigned in February, continuing his services the second semester on the selling staff. The store is located on the main floor next to the attendance office. The convenience of this location enables the students to make their pur- chases easily. The finest quality of goods is carried in the store. This stock is ordered from large companies in Los Angeles selected by the Board of Education.

Someone found a notice in the paper stating that Mr. Patz had applied for a marriage license and posted it on the bulletin board. Is Coach Patz married? No one knew for sure. After hours of secret whisperings and mysterious motions the students were asked to witness the ceremony. A very solemn procession waltzed down the aisle of the auditorium to the stage to the tune of "Here Comes The Bride." Milo McCord took the part of the Coach, Charles Gonzales portrayed the bride, Lillian Graham the mother, and Harvey White the fatherg Ernest Gill was best man, Charles Swain and Harold Teeple, bridesmaids, Wayne Pendergast, ring-bearer, Sherman Schwarz. fiower girl, Peggy Martin, page, and Raymond Miller presided as the minister. While everyone rollicked with so much laughter, the promising words of the couple could hardly be heard. After the ring was placed on the bride's finger and an awkward embrace ensued, the minister asked if anyone had any congratulations to offer. Pan- demonium ensued. Tumbling down the aisle cam-e a long string of tin cans with a gang of red sweaters following. It looked like a Senior brigade but these red jackets were only the guests with their presents. What a gor- geous display of gifts! A tapestry fcurtainj from China, a hand made rug from India, a gold wash basin ftinl from the King of England, kitchen utensils from Germany, and numerous other articles from all over the world. Each gift was presented to the bride and groom with a very effec- tive speech. What a riot! ' ' Before the ceremony took place Coach Patz couldn't be found. He wasn't on the field, in the gym or anywhere. Mr. Travis finally discovered him in his oiiice and immediately ushered him to a seat in the second row. Of course all eyes were on Mr. Patz to watch the faint glow of his cheeks rise. When he was called on the stage to say a few words after the presentation of the gifts, he could hardly talk. "Everytime I get up here I have a lot to say but I sure haven't now. All I can say is, I sure thank you," said the Coach. With that everyone was happy to know that he joined in the spirit in which was given. This was the most hilarious Aud call that Banning has participated in all year.

Their object in doing this was to commemorate the memory of the members of the old Wilmington High School who lost their lives in the war. The boys also had a bigger purpose in mind. They wished to make the boys and girls realize the horrors of war. Among the trophies given to the school were a dreadful looking German machine gun, a treacherous German rifle, two horrible steel helmets, a vicious sword and a canteen. The Wilmington De Molay organization se- cured them from the government from an arsenal in New Jersey. The Board of-Education was so impressed with this gift that it decided to give the school a case in which to keep the trophies.

Dorsey was the guest of honor, there were presented to the school, by the Wil- mington High School Classes of the years 1923 and 1924, two bronze tablets. The one tablet is the Ephebicm Oath: the other is The Pioneer, written by Mrs. Dorsey. These memorials now hang in the front hall. To have such fitting proof that the Alumni retain an interest in the school is truly inspirational. A DEDICATION AUD CALL DEDICATION OF THE PILOT WHEEL The formal dedication of the Pilot Wheel for 1929 was presented by Vera Travis, editor, at an aud call, January 29. The Optimist Club' was the guest of honor. The club sat on the stage with the annual staff. Mr. Rossman, president of the organization, accepted the dedication with a speech of thanks and appreciation. The Optimists have always been help- ers to the boys of our school, and are interested in the welfare of the girls as well. The popular Banning quartette added spice to the program with two numbers. Evelyn Mohns sang a solo, and Gordon Willey played the trombone. The curtain of the stage and a tall poster greeted the club and added a little fun to the occasion.

PATRICICS PARTY The Senior class of '29 threw off its yoke of dignity Saturday night, March 16, and enjoyed a peppy and very, very kiddish party given in its honor by Mrs. Grififth, Senior class teacher. Everyone thinks the Seniors are grown up, but convincing evidence which was shown that night certainly disproves this idea. Childish games and kiddish pranks made the affair one of the most com- ical and enjoyable parties ever held. La Rue Foster came dressed in baby costume and was the scream of the whole party. He seemed perfectly at home in his costume. Of course, that's natural. Initiation of the members of the Senior Class then took place. Each person was sworn in, blindfolded, and was forced to kiss the Bible. The Bible was exchanged for a pan full of flour. Imagine the embarrassment when their faces were pushed into it. You wouldn't believe it, but Walter Sawyer and other members of the class were surprised, cackling like hens and laying eggs. An identification act was next. Some of the girls and boys exchanged clothes and stood on one side of a lighted sheet, and other members tried to guess who they were. George Moore received the high prize, a rubber monkey, for having the most points for the evening. Refreshments followed. St. Patrick's decora- tions added a nice touch to the party. This is one of the brightlights of the Senior class of '29 and will never be forgotten. Senior: "Oh, Freshman. Why do you wipe your mouth on the back of your hand ?" Freshman: "'Cause it's so much cleaner than the front? Doris Fohl: "I hear you've taken up golf. What do you round in ?" Gladys McNeice: "Well, usu- ally in a sweater." Raymond Miller fin a cafel : 'fThe cheek of, that cashier. She glared at me as if I hadn't paid for my lunch." Alan Lind: "And what did you do?" Raymond: "I glared at her as if I had." Patty H.: "What do you call a man who drives a car ?" Papa: "It depends on how close he comes to me." Flo. Henderson: "Did you ever take chills?" La Rue Foster: "No, what period does it come ?" Mrs. Pearson: "What do they call the instrument the French use for beheading people ?" Morris Ross:'tThe Gillette, I think? Relieving her feelings.

About 10,000 students, including every shorthand and typing student in the thirty senior thigh schools of the city, participated in this exciting affair. The average score of each class was used as a basis for rating these classes. The final count placed Banning far above the average in all classes and we think the ollowing need special mention: Stcnograph I ......,.................,.............,,.....,......,..,,....,i.........,....,., First Place Stenograph III v........, ..... ...... ......,.. . . ,........

Third Place Of the 10,000 st dents taking part, Amy Prakel made the second highest rate-typing 67 net words a minute. She was awarded a silver pin at a special banquet given for the winners in the Polly Patio Tea Room in Los Angeles. Each month several students are the recipients of bronze, silver, and gold pins which are awarded for speed and accuracy by the various type- writer companies. f No one should miss getting into the swim with us. SENIORS RECEIVE PRIZES Three prominent students of Bann'ng, Florence Henderson, Vera Travis, and John McLaren, were the proud winners of a theme contest given by Rev. Thomas P. Swift. Rev Swift is called Father Tom around town. His purpose was to create more interest in the history of California among the boys and girls. Many students of the English classes entered the contest. The themes were graded by Rev. Swift and Miss Climie. Many months passed before the announcement of the winners came. The prizes were copies of the book written by Rev. Swift. Rev. Swift's book is made up of poems of the romantic history of California.

' DENNIE DRISKILL - THE BURGLAR Thrills, chills, and excitement were given to everybody that attended "The Burglar." The senior girls of the February class did very realistic work. The skit was so good that it was presented at the Granada Theater in addition to being presented in our own auditorium. The play was put on in January. The theme of the play was as follows: A burglar was running loose in the town in which a group of girls were having a house party. They heard a noise. Thinking it was a burglar, they grabbed some guns and prepared to defend themselves. Then they discovered that the noise which scared them so badly was made by a beautiful, harmless cat. The characters were as follows: Geraldine Harper, Leading lady K th ine Gillman Upon which side the egg should lay? - l a er Susan Capolungo Dorothy Healy - Dina Malvorazich ? Mother: CTO Mary Swift who had' been sent to the hen house for eggsl : "Well, dear, were ,there no eggs ?" Mary Swift: "No ymummie, only the one the hens use for a pattern." Gordon Willey: "I proposed to that girl and would have mar- ried her if it hadn't been for something she said." y Charles Gonzales: "What did she say ?"
